As my regular readers know, the phrase “I Still Wonder Where Rainbows Come From” inspired the name of my blog and my writings.
My grandfather was a storyteller. The quote is something often said by one of grandpa’s characters. This character was always looking for where rainbows come from. He would regularly get into trouble during his quest and then need his friends to help bail him out.
Hearing my grandpa weave his tales was fun and an amazing gift. I thought everyone knew about this layered character. Later in my life, I found out these were special for my family and our friends.
At the end of each story, this character would scratch his head and say, “I still wonder where rainbows come from.” This drawing celebrates that.
I have closed quite a few of my blogs with “I still wonder.” I mention that about the topic I am writing on. I want to keep this mindset of wondering and learning in my life and my son’s life as well.
I have always liked these stories and wondering about many, many things. I also know and love that friends and family will help me through the tough times. This was a great message that my grandpa illustrated in vivid and active stories.
And, I have always loved rainbows! I remember learning the colors in school – ROYGBIV — Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. These are all here — although the orange is tough to see.
I wonder what new item will inspire me next. I so look forward to finding out! May you find and enjoy your quest!

For Tuesday’s Tunes, I wanted to mention the latest in music that Ian has been singing.
This morning he said, “I love Bon Jovi.” And, he has been singing a few of the songs!
We have a greatest hits CD which includes the great song, It’s My Life. It includes several parts where Richie uses a special microphone to make modulated sounds.
Ian likes the wah-wahs that he does. And, he loves to sing the words as well. I love it since they have been one of my favorite bands for years. I saw them in concert in 1988 and would love to again.
Yesterday, he pretended two of his Hot Wheels firetrucks were members of the band. One was Jon Bon Jovi and the other was Richie Sambora. And, his other cars said they enjoyed the concert.
Our family has a new generation which loves this group! Isn’t that great?
Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
